Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sittinback Replaced electrician's plastic bodied model
My electrician installed plastic-bodied outdoor units. Ugly and breakable. I found metal-bodied units on the HD site. Purchased six and liked them very much. Wanted to buy more but had to settle for the model being presently reviewed. Same mfgr but slightly thinner material. It will work for my needs and would hold up well under 'normal' use for any homeowner. I like that I can use this unit regardless of the weather. I like that I can lock the unit if desired. I like that the unit comes with two outlet options: regular duplex outlet and more modern rectangular shaped duplex outlets for GFCI applications.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Kimosabe Well made, but this is entirely a Surface mount
First, this product is very durable and looks like it would be great for a back yard, surface mount. The problem is they only show you a picture of the front. They do not provide a side view and detailed views of the product. Only after I received it I realized it was designed such that not only does the lid protrude but also the 2inch back section behind they lid. Therefore, this entire thing will stick out over 4 inches.
I wanted to gut a hole in a stucco wall and install something like this but only wanted the large cover to stick out past the wall and to be able to recesse the back end section. This is not designed for that purpose so I had to return them and get a different item.
If the manufacturer provided a side view photo and other more detailed photos of the item in an open view , I would have seen this and not purchased for this purpose.
However, if you need them for a back yard or you are okay with them protruding more than 4 inches from the wall, they seem very durable.

Nice cover and we weren't expecting it to be lockable. Wow. Secures and protects from weather and whatever.

This was just what I was looking for a heavy duty box that I can lock to put my electrical cord connection to my survelliance cameras.

No list of included parts, so I ordered additional plugs only to return them. Instructions of an example installation would have been helpful. Not designed for the DIY'er.

I am a Master Electrician and semi retired only doing small jobs. I wish I had come across this cover years ago. What a sweet deal, easy to install and looks great.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JDBWV74 Exactly what I needed.
Easy installation and works perfectly. Roomy enough for chunky cords to be plugged in and closed up.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by koco So far so good
We have only had it installed a week and haven't had any rain, yet. We did have snow and the outlet still worked after the snowfall. Hopefully this will work, we are tired of replacing the outlet for the electric awning.
